Remember the old Buddy's grocery store on the SW corner? And the Santa sleigh rides around the mall? Greatness.

I remember being really little and hearing my parents talk about the young girls who were kidnapped from there. Did the police ever find them? I know it was a long time ago.

There are so many memories there. My friends and I used to love to go to Murphy's to see Oscar the fish. Take pictures in the black and white photo booth and them go up stairs and check out the 45 records.
Wow, I forgot ALL about Oscar the fish! And the lunch counter, we ate there almost every visit.
I used to go almost every saturday with my mom and bother to seminary south when I was a kid. That was until Hulen Mall opened.
We went back to semniary south a few years later and were thouroghly depressed at how run down it became and
GT Murhpies closed.
Good times nd memories.

My parents rode their first escalator at Sears when my mom was expecting me. I bought my wifes engagement ring at Zales. We saw our first movie together at the theater there (The Outsiders). Got naughty pics of her made in the B&W Photo Booth at Murphys. Bought my first Latex Halloween Mask at Murphys. Ate a ton of beef at The York Steak House. Yes, I spent a lot of time at SS. Many great memories were made there. Too bad that the great places are just memories now.

I remember the mall well but what always stands out in my mind is the three girls that went missing from there in '74. 35 years later and still no sign of them. Such a heartbreaking story. I saw it featured on AMW's website and it lead me to doing some web searches..which led here.

I remember seeing a picture one time that Harold Taft showed on his weather segment of a vehicle driving on the ice of the lake where the mall is located now. Seems like that was in the 1940's or 1950's.

My earliest memory was eating at the Wyatt's Cafateria and shopping at Murphey's. It was a big deal to shop at this mall in the 1960's and 1970's.

Now the mexicans completely took it over, as they are everywhere. They are multiplying at an alarming rate. We need a new fed govt who cares where this nation is headed!!!!!!!!!

I loved being able to grab something qick at Murphy's or having the option to take longer at El Chico. I think those of us who worked there in the glory days of the mall will always have really good memories.
Ah the memories

I used to work at the Dillards there back in the early 80's. Does anyone remember the club that was attached to the mall? We use to go there on Friday nights after work. Can't remember the name of it.
